Dental Health Tips For Your Holiday Season

Prevent Dental Suite Dental | Health Tips For Your Holiday Season | Dentist Kallangur Brisbane The holiday season is perhaps the most difficult season to stick to good dental habits. We are surrounded by rich and sugary foods, and with all the events of the season it is easy to lose track of our own health and that of our families.

All the goodies we eat, the events we go to, and the celebrations we enjoy, can lead us to neglect and harm our dental health. Fortunately, Prevent Dental Suite has partnered with dental experts from the North Pole to come up with tips for maintaining your dental health during the holidays.

We’ve put together 4 ways to make an advent calendar dental-healthy, and also collected 8 bonus tips to make your holiday season a healthy and happy one for you, your loved ones, and their teeth!

Working together we can make this holiday festive, fun, and full of shining smiles!

How Is Gum Disease Diagnosed?

Prevent Dental | Suite How Is Gum Disease Diagnosed | Dentist KallangurGum disease is normally diagnosed through a dental exam. Your gums will be checked for swelling, bleeding, and firmness, and your teeth will be checked for sensitivity and movement. The bone supporting your teeth will be examined with X-rays.

A periodontal probe will determine the progress of your gum disease. The probe is gently inserted into the gums and pockets surrounding the teeth to measure the depth of the pocket. Deeper pockets indicate greater severity.

After the evaluation, your Prevent Dental Suite dentist will make treatment recommendations.

How To Deal With A Knocked-out Tooth kallangur dentistAccidents can happen quickly without warning! Accidents to the mouth, can knock out (or “avulse”) your precious teeth.

At Prevent Dental Suite we’ve seen so many facial and dental injuries that it sometimes amazes how strong teeth and jaws can be!

But the fact is that accidents do happen, and they are the main cause of avulsed teeth in both children and adults.

An avulsed tooth requires immediate action and your quick response can increase the likelihood of long-term tooth survival. When a tooth is knocked out it’s blood and nerve supply is severed, but it can still be reattached if it receives proper care before a very quick trip to your dentist.

The Survival Guide to Getting Your Wisdom Teeth Removed kallangur dentist

The Survival Guide to Getting Your Wisdom Teeth Removed

The Survival Guide to Getting Your Wisdom Teeth Removed kallangur dentistIt might be during a routine teeth cleaning that you hear the bad news from your dentist: “It looks like your wisdom teeth are coming in.”

Unfortunately, these teeth don’t actually bring you any kind of wisdom. Instead, they get their name because they typically appear between ages 17 and 25, known as an “age of wisdom”, and they usually require treatment or extraction.

Not everyone develops the third set of molars (about 65% of us do), but the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons reports about 85% percent of people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth during their lifetime, meaning there’s not enough space for it to break through the gums.

6 Effective Ways to End Your Sugar Cravings

6 Effective Ways to End Your Sugar Addiction dentist kallangurUnless you deliberately avoid health related topics and discussion, you probably know the bad reputation sugar has within the health industry.

Many of us know that this is not necessarily a new thing; in fact, sugar has always been a “no-go” or a “sometimes” food for most health professionals. The latest research, however, is even clearer about the dangers of added sugars in foods. And sugar is present in more foods than ever.

When we began avoiding fat during the 80s and 90s we replaced fat, which tastes good, with sugar. This is alarming because we know the harmful role that sugar plays in tooth decay and the damage it can do to our overall health.

At Prevent Dental we want to be your partners in understanding and battling our dependence on sugar!
